Welcome to Winchcombe School

I hope our website will give you an insight into life at our school. We are always keen to ‘show-off’ the good practice that prevails here and to this end visitors are always welcome to take part in guided tours. Please contact the School Office to arrange a tour on 01242 602233.



Winchcombe School is unique in many ways. With a 21-acre site set in an area of outstanding natural beauty and less than 500 pupils on role, the personal touch is always guaranteed in everything we do.  Ofsted recognised this in December 2018 “The school is a tight knit and caring community and parents and pupils value their school.”



We offer a wide and varied curriculum focusing on the needs of each individual.  The majority of our departments produced GCSE results which are above the national average and last year all our leavers secured further education places. 

Our latest Ofsted highlighted the fact that youngsters feel safe and valued at the school. They also recognised that pupils are well behaved, and their attendance is good.  We have created a fear-free environment in which every member of the school community feels valued and supported.  Parents are also very supportive of the school and in a recent survey (December 2018) 94% said they would recommend the school to another parent.

It goes without saying there are a vast array of opportunities beyond the classroom for all our youngsters, with trips and visits taking place locally, nationally and internationality.  We aim to cater for the needs of all our students both inside the classroom and beyond.


Thank you for showing an interest in Winchcombe School and I look forward to meeting you in person in the near future.
